The UA SpeedForm Apollo: A Running Shoe Inspired by Apparel

The greatest thing to come out of a bra factory since, um, bras, is the Under Armour SpeedForm Apollo Running Shoe. Known for their apparel making prowess, UA brings it back to what they excel at with their latest running shoe.

Since its founding in 1996, UA has perfected the art of athletic performance wear. Taking the humble t-shirt and making it a sweat-wicking, quick drying powerhouse, UA has proved itself as a brand that knows technical clothing. Building upon their innovative history and knowledge of what athletes need, UA crafted the quick and light SpeedForm Apollo.

As the name suggests, this sneaker is all about speed and form. Lightweight materials steal the show from top to bottom, including the apparel-inspired upper and featherweight Micro G® midsole cushioning, ensuring nothing slows you down on the run. UA ditched the “guided fit” design of the previous SpeedForm model, instead opting for a streamlined, aerodynamic forefoot to up the quickness factor.

No socks? No problem! The SpeedForm Apollo also embraces a foot-hugging, virtually seamless design that’s perfect for those who prefer to run sans socks. The molded shape of the seamless heel cup certainly brings to mind the bras this shoe was constructed alongside, and it serves to hold the heel in place masterfully. Plus, the addition of a medial TPU stability bar offers just enough moderate stability for neutral runners.

You can add some speed to your form when you scoop up the Under Armour SpeedForm Apollo on February 28 at finishline.com. But first, check out the Runner’s World review below.
